The 2017 Daytona Bike Week Is Underway and in Full Swing Check It Out! AMERiders brings you a bit more goings on of the fun and frolicking in Florida. As the rumble of motorcycles echoes through Daytona Beach with the 76th annual Bike Week well underway. Half a million visitors are expected to crowd the streets of Daytona Beach.
the city has fine-tuned the way it manages traffic and crowds. “We’ve been doing this for a while,” said Police Chief Capri stated. “We have people come from other parts of the country to watch how we do things, how we move traffic and work people as far as moving them.
We have probably three major super bowls every year: Race week, bike week and Spring Break.” Students on Spring Break are in Daytona Beach this week as well. Capri says Bike Week has evolved into a countywide event over the years, but most visitors end up on Daytona Beach’s main street at least once during the week. “It’s more of a Central Florida event,” said Capri. “There are events going on in Flagler County and even down in Orlando at the Harley shop there. Lake County has a little bit of it of Daytona Bike week going on as well.”

Calling all animal lovers – and yes, that includes hogs!

The event begins at Halifax Humane Society where you can mingle, socialize and even take part in a special behind the scenes tour of our shelter before heading out on the run.
Poker run stops include 1. Ormond Brewing Company, 2. The Dog Pound Saloon, 3. Lagerheads Bar & Grill with the grand finale stop at 4. The Iron Horse Saloon. All poker run location stops are friends of the Halifax Humane Society. Because our friends across the community are graciously hosting the 2017 Ruff Ride, 100% of the proceeds raised this evening to go directly to care for the animals at Halifax Humane Society.
